E6600 how far to oc - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Going over 60c will not likely cause your instabability....it will however cause some pretty bad damage to your CPU.

The Big Typhoon is good, and while it has been proven very capable, I don't like blowing the hot air off my heatsink down onto my CPU and board. If the base is hitting a capacitor or something else, it may not be 100% flush with the CPU. Also, getting some better thermal grease, like Arctic Silver 5, could drop your temps significantly.

Since you have already upgraded, my recomendations there are moot


However, it would be useful to know what your other settings are. Vcore? RAM Speed? Timings?

It is possible a weak PSU could cause random restarts, but so could RAM instabability or CPU errors.

Before I would worry about keeping that overclock, or even going higher, I would address those temps as they are not good.

the RAM is at 4-4-4-12 (fro, 5-5-5-15), stock voltage. I had to bump the vcore to 1.36 though to get it prime95 stable (for about an hour.. don't have too much time, so I ended it.)

Temps are 39C idle and 53C load with dual prime, but close to 60 when I do 100% load in TAT.. but well, I never get similar temps with any program anyway ><

I clocked it back to normal and I am STILL seeing high temperatures. I don't know what the problem is. I tried putting the cooling device on again and everything seems fine.

I just ordered Arctic Silver 5 and everyone says to put it the size of a pea but on the site it says to do it down a line in the middle so which do i listen to?

I have always placed about a 2-3mm drop in the center and spread it into a paper thin layer across CPU, and have NEVER had anything overheat, building at least 50 systems this way. Spreading it across entire surface of CPU guarantees you that no space will go without. Just make sure that the layer is quite thin as too much thermal grease defeats the purpose. Good Luck!

Interesting, I just went to the AS5 website and they have changed the way the directions are displayed.....a much better layout IMHO. You now select the brand of CPU and then the closest physical match to your own for detailed specific instructions....much nicer than the old style.

It appears that they have updated their application instructions for dual core CPUs....the dot in the middle method appears to be the recomended method for single core CPUs, but as you mention, a think line down the middle is listed for dual cores.

I would follow the listed guidelines by the manufacture, and in fact, I will be re-applying AS5 to my 920 and 6700 this weekend in accordance with their updated instructions.

Note, neither the old or the new instructions recomend spreading out AS5. This can cause air bubbles and incorrect thickness layers that can hamper heat transfer. Follow the instructions carefully.

I don't know why but after applying AS5 my pc won't boot up anymore. Everything powers on but nothing comes up on the screen. Can somebody help me with this?

I've got your exact same setup, except I have less speed with my memory. 3.6 Ghz comes without a hitch at only 1.365 Vcore. The idle temps are 42C and load is 52C on both prime 95 running sequentially. You may need to reseat, unless I missed something and heat is no longer a problem. With that board, your vcore should be at stock voltages at 350 fsb, no problem.

Pull the battery out of the mobo, reset cmos so to say, and reset your bios settings to default, then start over with the oc... How thin/thick did you apply the AS5?
